Usually when you hear the word “scram,” someone wants you to go away. In the case of NYC’s Scram Jones, however, those who hear his production work had best pay close attention; the New Rochelle native has lent his board work to numerous bangers such as Black Rob‘s Ready and Mariah‘s Your Girl. Traveling down the producer/DJ road, Scram Jones is preparing his debut compilation album, set for release later this year. On the introductory buzz single, Third Degree, Jones sticks to what he does best: concocting a sharp street banger. Along for the ride are Brooklynites Saigon and Nino Bless, as well as Long Beach veteran Crooked I, who all contribute seasoned, punch line-filled verses (”…and I love New York more than Tailor Made”). NYC, stand up.
